This mill site is located on the River Chess, downstream from Lord’s Mill. Sitting aside the river, the mill was powered by an iron overshot wheel. With whitewashed brick walls, wooden upper walls and a slate roof, the mill was already disused by the 1930s. Windows in the building had by then been broken, but, although the mill was idle, machinery remained and a pair of stones was workable.
